Socks for friends

I was hanging out with Rachey the other night (Rachey is Elise's sister in law, and one of our favourite people). She has been poorly for a while and asked for some house socks. Sure, 8 ply socks, quick and easy. She want them longish, but because she's not eating enough, I don't need to do any calf shaping.

I pulled out my 8 ply scraps, and off I went. Because I couldn't be bothered weighing the yarn, I knit these socks two at a time on two sets of circulars. It worked quite well as a process, and I'd consider doing it like that again.

This are my shapely legs, not Rachey's
The socks themselves weigh 93 grams, and are just a simple 2x2 rib with a fish lips kiss heel.  Very quick, very fun, although there were rather a lot of ends to weave in!


I hope these socks give Rachey as much joy the wear as they did me to knit.
